Do you always need to use batteries for this iHome and can't you just plug it in the outlet instead?

I'm asking this because I want to take this anywhere I go either work or travel but I think charging the batteries is a hassle and could take awhile to charge. I've been looking at this for months so I'm just a bit indecisive right now.

  • You can plug it in but power is provided by USB so you would need an AC/USB adapter. If you plug it into your computers USB port and speaker jack on the same computer, you will get an unpleasant loud hiss.

  • Best Answer:

    this unit doesn't use batteries, they are built in, but you can use this unit while plugged in to a USB 2.0 port and also when running on battery only.
